In the anti Catholic tract "death cookie" chick makes the claim that IHS realy stands for Isis, Horus, and Set of the egyptian pantheon.: Bloodkith (talk) 22:05, 28 April 2011
Chick, a 20th century comic book writer "claims" something? How encyclopedic! History2007 (talk) 23:00, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
That seems to me to be one of the clearest cases where Chick must have pretty much known he was lying (or proceeded with one-eye-closed reckless and malicious indifference to truth and falsehood). In any case, the Geneva Calvinists also embraced IHS/JHS, and there are explanations in probably more detail than you want to know about the true origin at Christogram...

The scope of this article cannot be the "name of Jesus", for which see name of Jesus, let alone the name "Jesus", for which see Jesus (name), Yeshua (name). Its scope is clearly the specifically Roman Catholic tradition associated with the specific term of (Most) Holy Name of Jesus (Santissimo Nome di Gesù, there doesn't even seem to be a coined Latin term for it) as it developed from the 14th century or so. --dab(𒁳) 13:27, 6 August 2016 (UTC)
